Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review: 1/31

On this edition of Chicago Tonight: The Week in Review with Eddie Arruza, the polar vortex hits Chicago again. Temperatures plummet, schools close, and flights are canceled. In his annual state of the state address, Gov. Pat Quinn makes the case that Illinois is on the road to recovery. Chicago officially has the worst pension debt in the country among major cities. Libertyville-based Motorola Mobility is sold for almost $3 billion to Chinese company Lenovo. And in sports, the Northwestern football team leads a movement to unionize. And the Bulls and Blackhawks try to win on the road.
